Its chairman Petr Mlch comments on the selection of the photo of the year for the jury: “This photo does not only tell about us, although the Czech and Slovak flags are depicted on it. It is an urgent message about the current era, when aggressiveness and a radical approach to solving complex issues are constantly escalating. Covertly illuminates the rise of populism, which is gaining more and more attention. The public is often clear about how things should be organized, and this trend is not limited to us, but covers the whole of Europe. These phenomena are becoming more and more apparent and thus affecting our society on a global scale.’
